  1. Hey FUCK YOU!!! I'm a troll and I'm trying to get banned, so help me out. Take 3 seconds away from staring at those nasty, ugly blobs you got done by your sister/girlfriend and click the fucking ban button, unless you're too PUSSY!!!

  2. Fuck all you white trash maggot troll kitchen wizard motherfuckers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Hey fuck you, white trash troll motherfucker. What kitchen wizard are you going to for your next shitty tattoo?

  4. I'm glad I'm here, cause I haven't told anyone to FUCK OFF in a good long while. So everyone, FUCK OFF!!!
  5. Hey @gougetheeyes, fuck you, troll! - - - Updated - - - Your tattoos are shitty blobs done by scratch artists in a dirty kitchen, @gougetheeyes!
  6. Well if you're gonna let this shit stand, maybe you deserve to have me here. After all, every forum gets the trolls that it deserves.
  7. I don't have the fucking patience to deal with this shit. Just fucking ban me and get it over with. - - - Updated - - - Just fucking know that you can tell people whatever you want about why I got banned (if anybody even fucking cares, which I doubt and don't give a fuck anyway), but the truth is I'm leaving on my own terms cause I don't want to be a part of your shitty little clubhouse anymore. Fuck all your bullshit about what makes a "good" tattoo. I don't need a fucking forum to tell me my tattoos are shitty. I'm a fucking troll. Well guess what, motherfuckers? You couldn't cross my bridge with enough money to pay the toll ten times over. - - - Updated - - - Holy fuck, why am I not banned yet? Must I resort to childish name calling?
  8. I log in through facebook. When I'm not logged in, none of my posts show up, only the last person to have commented before me in a thread. Wasn't like that a few days ago. Wtf?
  9. Yeah, I definitely wouldn't get multiple tattoos from an artist that I couldn't connect with. I probably wouldn't even get one, considering that it's pretty normal (for me) to walk into a shop and try to talk to an artist about what I'm interested in getting. I can usually tell if the artist is personable. If they aren't, I'm getting the hell out of there and not going back. Sorry if this sounds like an "unfair expectation", but the artist's skill and quality of their work is not the only thing that counts with me. Getting a tattoo should be a memorable experience. Being uncomfortable with your artist can ruin that. I'd rather have an "ok" tattoo with a good memory attached to it than a great tattoo from someone I can't have a conversation with. If you can't have a conversation, then you either care too much about money and very little about anything else, or you're too busy to listen. Either one is no good to me.
  10. I'm suddenly a bit concerned lol. Right now where I live, jobs are scarce. I had an offer for full time, but it was too far to travel for the pay. They didn't care about my tattoos, the interviewer saw them and we talked about tattoos a bit. Then I had an interview at a temp agency for an order selector at a paint warehouse. They didn't say anything about my tattoos at all and asked to see my resume, but after I emailed it to them I did not hear back. Still, pretty sure it wasn't because of my tattoos. Now a grocery store has called me for an interview. Suddenly I'm concerned that they might take issue with my grim reaper because of how customers might feel about it. I kinda think it's stupid that I should worry about my tattoos holding me back from getting a job at a freaking grocery store, of all places. Pisses me off a little bit. I can wear long sleeves to cover my reaper, although I don't want to but I do need a job until I learn the skill that I'm working on and then I will have a career. I've had all kinds of factory jobs and never once worried about my tattoos. Now I'm scared to go to an interview at a grocery store, lol.
  11. 1, other forms of self-harm including incarceration? I mean yeah, incarceration isn't fun but it's not something most people do to themselves on purpose to hurt themselves or others. 2, I'm a christian and I have tattoos, including a grim reaper. I'm not one of the ones who shove it down people's throats and I don't judge anyone for how they believe or don't believe. But just...wow. I'm as offended as anyone else with tattoos would be, maybe more. I can't believe the person said they are little better than comic book drawings. I'm astounded in this day and age that someone could still have such a primitive ideology about tattoos. It's sad that people can still be so prejudiced and close minded about something as mainstream as tattooing.
  12. I have tattoos on both hands. My tattoo artist's assistant is also a hospice nurse. He provides hospice care for teens with developmental disabilities. He has a hand tattoo as well as other visible tattoos. And on that subject, a visible tattoo is a visible tattoo, on the hand, on the forearm, on the neck, etc. They also have several kinds of makeup which can cover tattoos. Hand tattoos are not socially acceptable? Maybe I don't understand the meaning of the word, but none of my family or friends has ever had a problem with me having tattoos on my hands. If they did, they never said anything, and to be honest I don't think it would bother me anyway. People don't stare at me like a freak of nature in public either. Perhaps what you may have meant was professionally unacceptable, to which I might agree because it might bother some people in the corporate world. Since I have no interest in the corporate world, again, don't care. I'm a blue collar guy, and no one at any job I've ever had has cared that I have tattoos on my hands. Of course, I am planning to change to a career where people would definitely be much more accepting of my tattoos, but that's neither here nor there. This is a tattoo forum, and for people that have their hands tattooed, it's something to talk about. Those who don't have or want hand tattoos are free to not join in the discussion.
  13. So let me get this straight. Making a joke makes me a troll. When I call people out for disrespecting me, that makes me a troll too? You know, a lot of gay men will make fun and call others gay because they are too scared to come out of the closet. Maybe that's sort of what's going on here? The troll calling the kettle black?
  14. Other forums I visit have a chat box. Gives people a chance to socialize openly, rather than discuss a single topic. It works best at the top of the home page.
  15. Back to the topic of discussion, does anyone have an actual opinion on the color contrast?
  16. I kinda agree in a way. Don't get me wrong, I like the new colors MUCH better than the old. Here is the only thing. My artist doesn't have a good quality deep red, at least according to her it comes out looking brown and that's no good. So she mixed dried blood (the color, not actual dried blood lol) with her regular red, and it came out darker than I expected. Right now it looks purple, but I'm expecting it to lighten some when it heals. Even if it doesn't, I'm still happy with it but it might have better contrast if it does lighten a bit. Either way, I'm good. Mainly I was looking for opinions on the color contrast itself and whether it "pops" in a good way, not which one looks "better". Perhaps I should have been more specific. I do still appreciate the comments given so far, though. At least I know some people are paying attention to me :D
  17. I'm just super glad that we worked it out and she was able to fix it for me. It's not a "perfect" tattoo, but it appeals to me in its own weird, funny way. I'm the kind of person who digs things others might consider low-quality, like ratty bikes or beat-up old furniture. This might be a super low rent, ratty black star but dammit, it's MY super low rent, ratty black star :p P.S. Even sometimes with a good artist, not every tattoo comes out perfect. In case the artist who did it ever reads this, I'm NOT dissing you. You did your best and I completely respect that. I don't think this tattoo is ratty or low rent. I used those words to turn up my nose at any "potential" snobs who may not accept this as a "good" tattoo. Not every tattoo has to be technically perfect to have an appeal. And the way I see it, if the tattoo appeals to the person wearing it, that's all that matters. All the tattoo elite can say anything they want. You're a very good artist, and I'll defend your work no matter what. And I really do like this star.
  18. @SeeSea, you don't have to be sorry. Everyone is perfectly entitled to their own opinions. I guess I just got bored with the color. It has been gone over several times, and the blue was always much lighter than I wanted. I decided to change it up and go a different route. Every tattoo isn't for everybody, so it's cool if you don't care for the new colors.
  19. It's still not perfect, but it's better than it was. My artist definitely appreciated the cookies.
  20. I had a tribal design on my hand that I was never very happy with how the color came out. So I decided to do some different coloring and experiment with color contrast. I like it, just want to hear some opinions. Take a look, here is a before and after. The blue is the before pic.
  21. Just saw this on facebook. - - - Updated - - - www.facebook.com/HorribleTattoos - - - Updated - - - The picture is not from the page I linked, it's from a different page.
  22. Makes me feel a hell of a lot better about my shitty tattoos.
  23. The hydrogen peroxide thing is amazing. I have a couple tattoos I'd like to remove, I'm definitely going to try this method. I wonder if anyone knows how it works?
  24. I personally feel that most of the responsibility actually lies with the clients who want the copied tattoos. If you want something done and one artist won't do it, you'll keep looking and eventually you will find someone who will. If someone goes to an artist and wants a certain tattoo like "DRAKE" across their forehead, there are plenty of artist who will do it because they want the money because they know if they won't do it then they will go to someone who will. Now, this is not entirely the artists' fault, because every artist has to use their own ethical judgment sometimes and people base their ethical judgment on different things. But the question is, why would someone want a copied tattoo? I mean there are exceptions like friends/family/lovers/etc that get matching tattoos and whatnot, but to see a tattoo on a person you probably don't know, and to know that it's an obviously one of a kind design and to go and say, hmm, I want exactly that? It bespeaks laziness and unimaginative boringness. You can't even muster the motivation to come up with your own idea about what you want for a tattoo? I have had friends ask me if they could get some of my tattoos, and the ones I was asked about weren't even custom, and I basically said that while I can't stop you, I'm not going to give you my permission. These are images I've chosen and I don't care for the idea of someone going around having copies of my body art.
  25. When it comes to a tattoo, never assume that an artist knows exactly what you want unless you've clearly articulated it directly to that person. One thing that is absolutely paramount in the process of getting a tattoo is communication between you and your artist, not you, your artist and a go-between 3rd party.
